Mixed materials like the down-filled duvet, grass cloth wallcovering, bamboo bench, and wool Berber carpet add warmth. The sleepy space gets a gentle wake up from the quiet splashes of celadon green on the bed linens, pillows, and bench cushions.
By mounting an Asian screen from the ceiling in this loft bedroom to create the illusion of a wall the open-air feeling of the loft was maintained.
For a touch of drama, this homeowner added black in various fabrics as well as in the plates and frames on the walls. Bold chevron stripes on the pillows mixed with a classic duvet pattern brings contemporary elements to the mix.
Classic Blue & Yellow Bedroom
A classic palette of blue and yellow gets a punchy modern update in this bedroom makeover, filled with fresh ideas for budget decorating.
The highlight of this room is the stenciled accent wall behind the bed. The bright persimmon-and-white duvet is grounded with a soft blue coverlet. The squared-off headboard’s casual slipcover, made with a soft blue linen, can be removed and tossed in the laundry.
Brown and blue are paired in the master suite, keeping the room restful yet crisp. The floral curtains add a feminine touch, while the bed linens take a masculine turn with a bold monogram that complements the dark wood tones found in the furniture.
Crisp and Clean
Keeping the basics white gives a clean, versatile look. Hanging a mirror above the headboard reflects light and creates a focal point.
This room, with its mixed traditional furnishings and contemporary details, takes its inspiration from a Japanese garden. The furniture comes from a number of sources. Some pieces are antique or vintage―the original recycled product―and others are made from reclaimed wood, but the majority is from nearby furniture companies committed to manufacturing in environmentally sensitive ways.
